New Braunfels isn't next door to Arlington but the park would be worth the drive if you have the time. It's divided into three distinct areas, the most unusual is the main part, which is also the oldest, as it's build into the side of a hill that drops down to the river. Rather than being out in the sun, the attractions are among the trees, giving some relief from the sun. The other parts are more modern, one with a wave pool where yo u can boggie board on a standing wave, and the other has an uphill water roller coaster. You'll have a good time.

It's worth the trip. Don't bother trying to stay on property. You have to book 1 year in advance! Lots of places to stay, next to the interstate. Great german food can be had in New Braunfels. Mondays and Tuesdays are best days to go. Also, in the big wading pool, there's a BAR in the pool.

If you want to avoid the driving time, Arlington has a decent alternative to Schlitterbahn (don't get me wrong, Hurrican Harbor is not near as good as Schlitterbahn, but it is an option) It's located within 1 mile of Ameriquest Field, where the Rangers play -- side note: I LOVE THE RANGERS -- Six Flags over Texas can also be seen from the Ballpark and is within walking distance. If you and your family like theme parks and roller coasters, this is the place.

Here is the link to Six Flags over Texas. They are running a $29.99 special on internet tickets right now. Normal price is $41.99.

Hurrican Harbor also has the "Print-n-Go" deal on their website. $22.50 instead of $29.99 at the park.

You'll have a blast wherever you go. Texas is full of fun!!! Are you bringing your boat along -- I can give you info on some good spots to ski as well.

Schliterbahn is great and the river is worth floating as well. It is south of Austin, so you could bring the boat and stop at Travis or one of the lakes west of travis on the same river chain of lakes. Jay's Six Flags, Rangers and Hurricaine harbor is a closer alternative with many great lakes in and around the DFW area.

Great place. I like the older section as the best for the same reasons stated above. Very unique and very fun. Take a day to tube the river as well. There are some fun tube shoots around some small dams that are fun as well.

My Rangers are working hard this year to win the division. Damn those Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (of California of the United State of America)

I swear, they have the most ridiculous name -- I don't care what the owner is trying to do with it -- it's just plain ridiculous.

I've been dying to make the trip from Colorado ever since the Travel Channel named it the number-one water park in the country.

Would like to visit TSR and get a few sets in while down there too.

Did you meet Blake and Holley at TSR? Milk-when are you coming to the Metroplex. I'm sure one of us could arrange a set.

There actually is a song I heard on a waco, tx radio station"When in Texas, do as the texans do."



North Padre? I've been here a long time and only knew of a South Padre, from which you can hear Mexico calling your name....... But don't do it. :noface:

S'bahn is a blast (at least the one in New Braunfels). Wurstfest is fun if it's October. Texas Ski Ranch is nearby, too.

Actually took a wrong turn one time and ended up in North Padre (about 3 hours from S. Padre). Definitely not the same atmosphere. :friday:

It exists and it's not Port Aransas. Probably a little south of Port A. From my memory of it, before we turned around and drove another 3 hours, there's nothing there. And I mean, nothing. It was like a state park. No hotels, no bait shops. Nothing.

that's exactly why I won't be going back!
the best part of our trip was San Antonio, Austin, & Arlington.
If we had not driven to the gulf, we would have had a great trip.

That is what we have always said. We used to live in Port A and would tell people that Port A is Mustang Island. Some people will never learn.
